Suspected Foob - NS Tank Car

NS related foobs are making their way to the rails - with the Roanoke convention coming up....   :)

I am well aware that NS has some tank cars, mostly in MOW service.   I am doubtful about these...  Could not find an image in rrpicturearchives or railcarphotos,  the numbers are in the middle of ex-Conrail cars renumbered into NS series...

I do know NS has some tank cars that the Atlas 11k could stand in for, and at least one orange one that the Kaolin car is close to...  On top of this, NSE could have done those VERY common tool cars that are a dead ringer for the MTL 76000 body.  And of course there are a number of hoppers,  TopGons, flatcars, etc that would make excellent special run cars.  (If anyone from NSE is out there, drop me a note about doing something with respect to my camp car bodies, maybe we can work something out...)

Then again, maybe these are real??

They may be foobs, but they are one of the few NSE sets I'd buy.

I have been considering the Lake Division Caboose...  Every once in a while something really interesting comes along....

I'd buy them too because of the Roanoke stenciling, but I am not an NSE member.

The only one I know of is the bright orange one which is definitely an NS mark, usually seen with a ballast cleaner...

The other ones probably had NW marks - they were older single dome car, usually painted green, but at least 1-2 had an NS logo...

update:  here are two:  http://trainweb.org/phillynrhs/RPOTW130804.html

There are/were a couple of others in NS initials as it turns out: http://www.krunk.org/~joeshaw/pics/ns/co-cars/tank.shtml
